Small Groups

Do you feel plugged in at church?  Do you know the people who worship with you each Sunday?  Do you want to become more involved but don’t know where to start?  Then Small Groups are a good place to begin.  Whether you wish to lead one or participate in one, these events offer you a chance to become more involved with the Arlington Church Family.

Currently, we have 11 small groups that meet regularly throughout the week.  Small groups are one of the most important aspects of our spiritual life because they allow us to grow closer together as a family of God.  They encourage us to study the Bible and challenge one another, pray together, get to know those we attend with, and share in our struggles and successes.  We hope that you will take a look at what is currently being offered and be inspired to either attend a group or begin a new one.

Should you have any questions about this area of our worship, please use the CONTACT US link above.  We will respond as quickly as possible.

Friday 1st Fellowship and Study – Every First Friday of the Month, 7:00 p.m. (Except Holiday Weekends)

Do you want to learn God’s Word and grow as a disciple of Christ?  Personal growth in Christ does not happen in isolation or in a vacuum.  Friday 1st Brown Bag Study Group offers an opportunity to be a part of a community within a community where all of us embrace the sufficiency of God’s word.

For one hour, once a month, please join us with your “brown bag” to eat and your hungry heart to receive.  Together we’ll enjoy studying God’s word, His story, and encouraging one another.

This meeting is open to all.  For more information, contact Ray or Vanessa Hall at
